Atmel Corp. has announced the AVR Dragon development tool for AVR microcontrollers(MCUs). By providing a complete on-chip debugging and programming tool for more than 30 different AVR Flash microcontrollers at only Rs.2,277.03 ($49), the AVR Dragon is the industry's most comprehensive low-cost development tool.

With the AVR Dragon, Atmel has set a standard for low-cost development tools. The AVR Dragon supports all programming modes for all AVR microcontrollers and on-chip debugging for AVR MCUs with up to 32KB of flash program memory.

By focusing on quality and having only one tool suite covering the entire AVR MCU family, engineers only need to deal with a few affordable tools to get a complete development environment, said Atmel.

AVR Dragon is powered by the USB cable and can also source an external target with up to 300mA for programming or debugging. If the target is already powered by an external power source, the AVR Dragon will adapt and level convert all signals between the target and the AVR Dragon.

The AVR Dragon uses the AVR Studio integrated development environment available free of charge from Atmel. AVR Studio includes a simulator, assembler and C-compiler and is the software front-end for all Atmel AVR debugging and programming tools. A flexible and secure firmware upgrade feature allows AVR Studio to easily upgrade the AVR Dragon to support devices free of charge.
